Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of mint, honey dew, and lemon. Flavors of green apple, lime, and pear blossom.
Vineyard Notes
One vineyard sits between 900' and 1200' elevation. Southeast aspect, with 10% grade. Rocky soil comprised of shale, limestone and clay. The other is a similar elevation but is comprised of green stone and quartz and is a Southwest aspect.
Production Notes
The grapes were whole cluster pressed. Juice settled over night in tank. 25% was fermented in new French oak barrels. The remainder was fermented in tank. Once dry the two lots were blended together.
Winemaker Notes
2016 was quite wet in early spring making conditions challenging in the vineyard. July and August dried out and we saw good ripening and flavor development in both reds and whites. Merlot, Cab Franc and Chardonnay stood out.
